topranked defense is eager to test itself against the nemesis Tennessee Vols again.
UCF's game against Memphis called off due to Hurricane Irma has been rescheduled for Sept. 30.
The Knights and Tigers had to cancel nonconference games and finalize paperwork, slightly delaying the official announcement until early Thursday evening.
The kickoff time and TV schedule have not yet been set.
The American Athletic Conference announced Thursday morning numerous league school schedules were being adjusted to help USF and UConn make up their game called off due to the storm. The release noted officials were working to reschedule the UCF-Memphis game.
UCF coach Scott Frost made it clear he was frustrated the Knights didn’t play Memphis before the storm hit on Friday, Sept. 8, and is eager to face the Tigers.
“We need to play Memphis,” Frost said. “In my opinion, we should have played them that Friday night. They were in town ready to play. People above me made the decision not to play that one. We were ready to play it. I look forward to play them if we get a chance.”
